Go to the stealership and they can look it up. They will want proof of ownership (title). They will also be very happy to sell you a second key and have the service center reprogram the key for lot of green backs.

On 993 rennlist forums there are lots of threads on how to reprogram a new key with code, and here http://p-car.com/diy/remote/ on P-car DIY. Tricky work, very complex detailed Rube Goldberg (got'a love German Engineering) procedure, but many have done it successfully. A few have given up and paid the stealership prices for the piece of mind. Good luck.

I recently solved this same problem on my 1996 manual 911.  The dealership provided my 4 digit PIN or key code.  I bought a couple key blanks at https://mysecuritypro.com/keyblanks.aspx  for about $5 each. My blank was an Ilco .PO5 (capital "O" not a zero) and I had it cut by a local, automotive locksmith called The Door Heros for $10.  My local big box stores (Home Depot, etc.) could not cut this key.  I bought the USA 315 MHz key fob remote keyless entry for my 993 at https://www.ecudoctors.com/collections/porsche-993-1996-1998 for $150.  Their programming instructions and video did not work for me, but the instructions at this web site worked the first time:  https://993servicerepair.blogspot.com/2020/04/remote-entry-key-fob-programming-made.html  This approach is the simplest and least expensive of any I found found via many web searches.
